five others before police killed him. earlier reports said six victims were shot to death. >> police say the shooting spree started near a home near the college and spilled on to campus where obama was holding a fund-raiser. the shooter was between 25 and 35 years old and wore a bullet-proof vest and fired an assault-type rifle. miguel, what do we know? >> reporter: they removed the bodies from the college behind me and the other areas where people died and they are continuing to collect evidence to figure out how this person carried this thing off. >> a deadly rampage rolling through the streets of santa monic monica. a man leaves this house inside, two victims believes to be the

3:04 am
>> reporter: from the house that was set on fire to the library at the college, packed with students studying for finals. >> it looked like he was standing there posing for the cover of a ammo magazine, and it was bizarre, calm, not running, just looking for targets casually. >> reporter: in 15 minutes after it was started, it was over. >> the officers came in and directly engaged the suspect and he was shot and killed on the scene. >> reporter: his body moved from the library and taken to the sidewalk where he was finally pronounced dead. >> the most insane thing about all of this is the horrible day here in santa monica. it started about a mile from where we are, and then literally, ten, 12, maybe 15 minutes later it ended in a deadly hail of gunfire here at
3:05 am
the library, and it may have been campus police with the college that delivered the fatal shot to him. victor, back to you. >> thank you so much. >> when the gunman opened fire, joe orcutt thought he was hearing backfire and then came face-to-face with the man holding the gun. he is with us now. what did you see yesterday? >> actually, i work at the university and am not a student. but the first thing, it was just a bunch of sound and i was wondering what was going on. didn't think that there was a car backfire, and then when there was a second shot, it very much sounded like a gunshot. and the first two shots were in
3:06 am
a staff faculty parking lot that was nearby, and apparently it was at either a staff or faculty person that was leaving the parking lot for the day. it was in a red suv, and he hit the driver and i heard the -- basically the impact of that car into a brick wall that was across the street. and going down to pearl street there to see if everybody was okay and what was going on, just realized that there obviously was some kind of a shooter or gunman or gunmen, i did not know what was going on at the time, but when i was at the end of this long corridor leading to pearl street where this car had
3:07 am
gone through the brick wall, i started thinking, well, where is this gunman at. when i turned around and looked back to where i had just come from, he was standing 30 feet away right in front of me. by the time the whole area had cleared out and so he is at one end of the corridor and i am at the other end and we just looked at each other for a second and he spun around fairly slowly and aimed his gun at me, and i dove to the left of me and hid behind a building. he shot, and i could hear this whiz go by bike a bee. and it all happened really, really fast. >> you heard the bullets go by your head and you say he was calm. tell us about his demeanor. >> i only saw him for a couple
3:08 am
seconds. when i turned around it was really the profile of him looking down through the liberal arts building that would have led him to the library ultimately, but he was standing very still, and then he turned his head and he saw me and then he just panned fairly slowly towards me and lifted up the gun and started aiming. he seemed very calm, and he was not running or screaming or doing anything erratic other than hanging around and looking to see what targets were out there. >> we are still waiting to get more information on the gunman including his name and the connection to the people in the house and on campus. we are happy you are okay, and unfortunately you had to experience this, but we thank you for speaking with us this morning. we have learned overnight nelson mandela has been rushed to the hospital in africa.

3:10 am
neighbors know the redhead at shannon richardson, but in hollywood she is known as an actress that appeared in minor roles on television shows like "the walking dead," and she put on quite an act for federal investigators and tried to frame her husband in the real life drama. according to court documents she met with authorities to say her husband had mailed three letters. she placed beans in the trunk of their car and sprinkled ricin around his tools. they found ricin research on the computer and suspicious materials in the house. investigators dissented on the couples' home last week in the far northeast corner of texas. from the beginning, investigators were suspicious of
3:11 am
her story and now believe it was shannon richardson and not her husband that mailed the letters that contained an ominous threat. you will have to kill me and my family before you get my arms. the right to bear arms is my right, and what is in this letter is nothing compared to what i have got for you. >> i got more danger from lightning than anything else, and i will go about my business and we will work on getting guns off the streets and out of the hands of criminals and people with mental problems. >> shannon richardson is now in custody for mailing the ricin letters and her husband filed for divorce on thursday. court documents cite discord or conflict of personalities as the reason for the breakup. investigators say shannon richardson admitted to mailing the letters, and she goes on to
3:12 am

3:13 am
off and getting out of the way. >> well, despite its fast pace, it has left behind record rain and flooding. it's moving quickly. maximum sustained winds, 45 miles per hour. predominantly those are off the coast where the heaviest rain is at this point. record rain in new york and laguardia, 3.3. kennedy, 4 inches. and on a whole, between 3 and 5 inches of rain. here is a look at the rain. boston still has some more, and new york, connecticut, southwestern connecticut, and fairfield county all getting out of it and that pushing to the north and east, and another batch, a lot of moisture in the atmosphere, heading toward washington, d.c. you can see where it is now, west virginia and southwest virginia, and areas that had a lot of rain yesterday with andrea, but we have another severe weather threat today. i will tell you where it is and where the potential for tornados exist once again.

is your security more important than your privacy? that's the question, right? >> the white house is fiercely defending surveillance programs that are putting your phone records and e-mails and online pictures and videos in between everything right in the hands of the government. brian todd is in washington. brian? >> the president is under fire from his liberal supporters who say he has betrayed them on civil liberties. however you look at it the president is behaving far different from candidate barack obama. coming off seven plus years of warrantless wire tapping and sweeping surveillance and enhanced interrogation.
3:18 am
>> this administration seems like that's the way to enhancing security and it's not. >> he promised full transparency, which he said would be a departure. >> the only way you can hold us accountable is if you know what we are doing. >> this week it's revealed the obama administration allowed the nsa to collect phone records of millions of americans and monitor the online activities of people overseas and add that to the fact he expanded the drone strike program and is unable to close guantanamo and goes after leakers with unprecedented zeal, and calling him george w. obama, and you have one praising the surveillance program while a traditional backer of president obama writes the administration
3:19 am
lost all creditability on this issue. expectations for obama are in disarray. >> when he was a candidate, the left was expecting a libertarian, and the right is expecting a professor of constitutional law. >> should either side be surprised? as a senator in 2008 obama voted in favor of the legal guideline for the government's wire tapping program, but why would he have pivoted so far towards bush? obama explains it himself. >> i came in with a healthy skepticism about these programs and my team evaluated them and scrubbed them thoroughly and expanded some of the oversight, increased some of the safeguards, but my assessment and my team's assessment was that they help us prevent terrorists attacks. >> one civil libertarian says
3:20 am
this. >> if he felt out those promises he could be blamed for an attack or blamed for anything that occurred. so if you are always continuing the same program as your predecessor and expanding them and accepting these policies, you are less vulnerable to criticism. >> when we asked the white house to respond that he became george w. obama, and they said don't forget he ended the war in iraq and placed moreover sight on the same surveillance programs we are now talking about. >> thanks. this is something that resinates, and a lot of the national security topics don't but the guys talking about this in the barbershop and the people i meet at the supermarket are talking about this, that the government has some kind of information about their cell phones, up to this point, though, they didn't know what. >> we go with the debate protection versus privacy, and
3:21 am
after boston there was talk about why weren't the dots connected and there should be more done, and then you see here, now we are talking about well this is an overreach of our privacy and a violation. so where do you draw the line? >> the president makes a good point that i think a lot of people knew but never heard the point articulated. no such thing as 100% security and no such thing as 100% privacy. >> and a big difference between the candidate on the campaign trail and the president. once he took office you get a rereality check. >> we will continue to follow this. kidnapper castro slammed with 329 charges. coming up, we will break down the charges of the man accused of holding three women captive for a decade.

cleveland kidnapping suspect castro has been indicted on 329 charges. >> he is accused of holding amanda berry and gina dejesus, and knight for years. one charge accuses of 52-year-old castro of aggravated murder for purposely causing the evened of one pregnancy. >> here is the breakdown of one indictment. 139 counts of rape, and 177 counts of kidnapping, and seven counts of gross sexual impossession and three counts of felonious assault, and one count of possession of criminal tools. let's start with the 329 counts.
3:26 am
is that what everybody expected? >> we knew they were going to go after him. i was at the press conference when they said, look, we are serious and we are looking into murder charges and a whole slew of charges and this guy needs to pay the price for what he allegedly did. but 329? that is astounding. most of us were shocked to hear that. let's keep in mind, this was just half the time that these women were in captivity. this is only have. there will likely be more charges to come. but i think the message this sends is that they are serious and they want to make sure this guy is behind bars for the rest of his life or potentially faces the death penalty. >> there were probably intense interviews of these women to come up with the counts of rape and kidnapping. >> i was shocked by how much detail was in the indictment and it had the dates throughout the
3:27 am
years, and i think to myself, wow, these women, you know, obviously this is something that scarred them for life, and also that they were able to remember the details being tied up with a vacuum cord. in the indictment it says one of the victims said that she was woken up by castro and sexually assaulted. it's amazing to read the detail that allegedly occurred over the past year. >> you had a conversation while you were in cleveland with a friend. >> i have been there three times and talks to the friends of the victims and families, and i spoke to one of the friends last night and he was at the home of one of the victims, and he said it was like a party after the indictment was released and they found out about the 329 charges and they were elated. i think more than anything it's a relief for these victims to know that he is not going to be able to come back and get them. they are safe and protected, and they -- >> potentially more charges to
3:28 am
come. >> right, this only covers half of the time they were in captivity. >> we will continue to follow that, of course. a mile-long rampage shatters the calm in that city. we will go live next. stay with us. we know it's your most important videoconference of the day hi! hi, buddy! that's why the free wifi and hot breakfast are something to smile about. now, get great getaway rates and feel the hamptonality

3:34 am
25 and 30 years old. he was armed with pistols and an ar-15 rifle with extra clips and the shooting spree started at a home near santa monica college, and the gun man reportedly fired into a car and then carjacked another vehicle and headed on to campus. it ended outside the library where police shot the suspect. he died at that point and it all went down ten minutes from where president obama was holding a fund-raiser. cnn's miguel marquez is in california this morning. what are they saying about the investigation? >> reporter: they are not saying a lot at the moment and don't want to give away too much before they figure out who this guy and what his background is. law enforcement sources said they have in fact identified the shooter even though they are not making a public identification,
3:35 am
and they are starting to collect data about him and trying to figure out exactly what led him to this and what the motive could have been. a shocking, shocking day here across santa monica to have the house fire start at 11:52, and minutes later a carjacking, and then literally five or six different locations that this person went to within a mile of the school here, and finally getting to the school and having a shoot-out with the police. witnesses say it sounds as though he was looking for it, because he was engaging police verbally say witnesses. they told them to drop the gun and he didn't. it's not clear how many weapons he had on him. police being coy about that, and saying he had a rifle on him, the semiautomatic version, and he had at least one handgun but had a bag with him that had
3:36 am
ammunition on him and other weapons, and police are trying to figure out whether he owned all the weapons legally, and then there was a shoot-out with police and it sounds like it may have been campus police that delivered the fatal blow. at this point investigators being fairly quiet about what they know. they have at this point taken all the bodies out of here at santa monica college, including the shooters in other locations, and they are continuing to go through the college which will remain closed through much of the day today. they may allow people to get back in there whose bags and keys and cars and that sort of stuff are in the college, because there are hundreds if not thousands of them, and they may allow them to get back in to collect those things, and for the most part, the campus is closed and they continue to process the information hoping to figure out how it kicked off, and the people inside the house were related to the shooter. whatever kicked it off started there and ended here.

south africa's president is urging his country to pray for nelson mandela, he is 94 years old and a legend and icon. he was rushed to the hospital overnight when a persistent lung infection flared again. let's go out to robin. how is mr. mandela doing? >> reporter: we don't know. we don't get a lot of information from the government here. we are relying on one statement issued a few hours ago saying that at 1:58 a.m. south african time, his condition deteriorated significantly enough for him to be rushed to the hospital. the doctors are saying that he is in a serious but stable condition. >> we have some new pictures -- you have pictures from april. let's see some of those and tell
3:42 am
us about these photographs. >> reporter: as you know, mandela has not been seen in public since 2010. the recent photographs from just a few months ago show a very weak-looking nelson mandela. he is surrounded by the south african president and his doctors and children, and he looks confused and slightly bewildered. and sources close to mandela, he has not spoken a lot and he is retreating into himself and you can see a man that is very, very old. >> we have not seen him on camera in the videos for a birthday party a year ago and not speaking in this video. this is the third time in the last year or so and maybe the fourth he has been in the hospital and his health has been deteriorating over time. >> reporter: absolutely. this is why this is key and this is why people are so worried.
3:43 am
this is the fourth time he has been in the hospital in the last four months. he spent easter and christmas in the hospital and again focusing on his lungs, and the doctors are concerned about the infections that keep coming up in his lungs, and his health is deteriorating in the last few months, and his wife, we understand, is with him by his bedside now. >> thank you so much. the group that sets national rules for lung transplants will hold an emergency meeting monday to review and possibly change its policy on child organ recipients. a meeting granted two sick children priority transplants from adult donors. >> javier's family is hoping he has a better chance at
3:44 am
surviving. the 11-year-old has cystic fibrosis and needs a lung transplants and so too, does sarah. she suffered from the same disease, both are at the same hospital in philadelphia. each family praying a lung donor will come in time now thanks to a federal judge's decision. >> we sat down and explained the system a little bit in a way that she could understand. she tpeplt a lot of hope last night when i explained that to her. >> earlier this week the judge ordered the department of health and human services to suspend the policy in both cases which prevented all children under the age of 12 from receiving priority in the adult pools for transplants. since there are more lung donations from adults, they say
3:45 am
what should happen now is clear. >> the system needs to be changed and fair for everybody, for adults and children. i don't want sarah in front of anybody who is sicker. it should be the sickest person first. >> javier's family knows the pain of waiting all too well. in 2009, his brother who also had cystic fibrosis died whale waiting for a transplant. they initiated the lawsuit against hhs and secretary sebelius urging her to change the under 12 rule. she was questioned about it during a hearing. >> the worst of all worlds in my mind is to have some individual pick who chooses and who dies. you want to process where it's guided by medical science and experts. >> dhhs has declined to comment on the on going legal matter, and on monday the organization
3:46 am
that manages the list and works with hhs will hold an emergency meeting to review the lung allocation policy. the lawyer representing both families says the organization should do more than just review it. >> i would think the prudent thing to do is suspend the policy. >> and that's not entirely out of the question. in a copy of the letter written to secretary sebelius earlier this week, they said if the committee finds the available data suggests a change is warranted, the committee would be able to approve it. >> all right, thank you for that. i guess we will have to wait until monday to see what comes out of that meeting, whether there will be an injunction or not. >> at least we saw the video with the woohoo with the cheers and tears.
3:47 am
>> now we see not only sarah, but the other child as well that will be put on that list priority. >> we will have a conversation in a little more than an hour. we will talk with sarah's mom, janet, about the judge's ruling and her daughter's fight. president obama defending the phone and surveillance program arguing that keeping details on millions of phone calls keeps us safe. critics say the government has gone too far this time and it needs to stop. we will break down the debate after this. s ready?
